Former Rep. Kim Berfield is one step closer to returning to the House after winning the GOP nomination for House District 58.
Berfield bested tech entrepreneur Jason Holloway in the Republican Primary, taking 54% of the vote to Holloway’s 29%. A third candidate, Jim Vricos, mustered 18% of the vote.
Now, Berfield will go on to face Democratic nominee Bernie Fensterwald in the upcoming November General Election.
Although the former legislator was victorious against GOP newcomer Holloway, the race was competitive. But, while Berfield trailed Holloway’s substantial fundraising throughout the race, her name recognition in the area ultimately proved more valuable.
